about

'Revisionist History (Compilation Works)' is a collection of all the obscure, one-off 36 tracks that were used on various compilations from 2011-2020. They showcase an eclectic range of styles, held together by that familiar melancholic 36 glue. Many of these tunes are quite different to anything I've ever released on my albums/EP's, which was kind of the point! They are orphan tracks, which found a home among the many wonderful labels out there.

I always wanted to compile all these tracks into a single long-player, but as many of these tunes are very old, it was always going to be a challenge. Due to the nature of compilations, many of these tracks were mastered by engineers I had no experience with, which meant the sound was often quite different to how I envisioned them. Some weren't even mastered at all! My previous compilation 'Orphan Works' was just a slapdash playlist of all the tunes I could find, in various states of technical distress. It was messy to listen to and I wanted something better sounding and more coherent.

Sourcing the original project files was quite a pain in the ass to say the least, as despite having a complete archive of every track I've ever made, my cataloguing system leaves much to be desired. Some tracks took me days to find, mostly through trial and error. It felt like a time capsule listening back to them! I went though each original project file and re-mixed every track, then gave them my own personal master afterwards. Some older tunes needed quite invasive editing of the original mixdowns to make them sound on par with my modern productions, but hopefully you will agree that the sound is better and more consistent now. It gives all the tunes a new coat of paint, without killing the vibes of the original arrangements. I also included an unreleased track called 'Point of No Return' which was meant to be used on a compilation album, but for whatever reason, was never released.

It is free/pay what you like, so if you enjoy them, anything you send over will be greatly appreciated. Thank you to all the labels who featured the original tunes on their compilations and cheers to you as always for taking the time to listen! - 36
